Mansfield woman charged for murdering 2-year-old

MANSFIELD - MANSFIELD - A local woman has been charged with the murder  of a 2-year-old child in April 2016.

Allison Nething, 20, will be arraigned Tuesday in Richland County Common Pleas Court, according to court records.

She was charged with murder and two counts of endangering children Thursday. She is being held in the Richland County Jail.

Richland County Prosecutor Gary Bishop and Richland County Sheriff J. Steve Sheldon will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. Friday at the prosecutor's office regarding the recent indictment and arrest of Nething.
